There is no sin in being ignorant; the sin is to remain ignorant.
Roy Curtiss III
We can spend as much as we want on other things, but in the end, if we’re not funding science, we’re moving backwards.
In the fields of observation, chance favors only the prepared mind.
I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I'll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be.
1. Trasncriptomic analysis. We are fully equipped to perform microarray analysis. We are using microarray slides produced by Mycroarray.

2. Flow Cytometry. We are using flow cytometry to determine the portion of live and dead cells in a population of bacteria, such as Legionella pneumophila.
